DigiPen Set to Move to a Larger Campus in Summer 2010


We are pleased to announce that the DigiPen Institute of Technology is moving to a new, larger campus in north Redmond on Willows Road. The new campus will house all DigiPen bachelor's and masters degree programs, as well as some of its K-12 initiatives.  The new campus, which is more than 100,000 square feet, has been custom designed to best fit the needs of DigPen's students. It will include tiered-seating auditoriums, classrooms, art studios, electronic labs, a large work area for students to study and collaborate on projects, library, cafeteria with a professional kitchen, student recreation room, and a general store.

According to Claude Comair, founder and CEO of DigiPen Institute of Technology, "This move represents a great point of development for DigiPen and the game industry. DigiPen has been teaching students for over 20 years, and with that valuable experience, we were able to design the new campus to provide the students with the best environment to learn, collaborate on projects, live their daily lives, and be most productive, so that we can
provide the industry with the best workforce possible. The new campus has been designed to fit DigiPen's unique way of teaching, which balances a very rigorous academic curriculum with practical projects from start to finish. Furthermore, having all our degree programs under one roof will enable the students from the various degree programs to collaborate with each other on projects much more efficiently in an environment similar to what they will encounter in the real world. The functionality and design of this new campus will enhance the quality of our students' education and experience."
